Library of Architecture and Design

This is a library for those interested in architecture and design. We offer a wide range of literature concerning all aspects of architecture. In our collections you will find works on individual architects, architectural theory, materials engineering, urban planning, and much more. Within the area of design, we have books about industrial design, drawing, different types of craft and furniture. Within our library you also find course books for programmes A and ID. Furthermore, you find study places and cosy chairs where you can sit down to read one of our 40 magazines from all over the world. In addition to printed items, we have several electronic resources, for example the database DETAIL inspiration and the journal El Croquis. Our competent staff will help you find whatever you are looking for in our collections.
